Vintage Band Of The Week: The Smiths

The Smiths were a British indie rock band that formed in Manchester in 1982, and broke up in 1987. The band was incredibly influential and has since achieved a cult following.

The members were Morrissey (lead singer), Johnny Marr (lead guitars), Andy Rourke (bass guitar), and Mike Joyce (drums).
